In December Silje-Kristin Jensen attended an international whale watching conference called 'whale watching worldwide' arranged by the International Fund of Animal Welfare (IFAW) at the UN University in Tokyo, Japan.  Jensen contributed with a talk about how whaling and whale watching can co-excist in Norway representing APECS Norway. Sharing information about APECS together with oportunities for whale watching in Norway was a great success.

Whale watching operators from USA, Caribbean, Norway, Iceland and Japan attended this two-days conference. The conference focused on laying important groundwork for the continued growth in whale watching activity in Japan and worldwide.
